RAM, or Random Access Memory, is a type of computer data storage, that permits the information to be read randomly without accessing the preceding bytes before that. That makes the RAM substantially faster than other kinds of storage devices including DVDs or HDDs where all of the information has to be read to be able to access certain info. In case you have a shared hosting account, the amount of memory that your web apps can use may not be fixed and may regularly be determined by the free memory that is available on the physical web server. Using a standalone server, however, there's always a minimum amount of physical memory that'll be readily available at all times and will not be allotted to other customers even when it is not in use. That is valid with our virtual and dedicated web servers.
Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers
When you acquire a VPS server from us, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM available at all times. We set up the VPS accounts on powerful hardware nodes with lots of physical memory, so as soon as a new virtual server is set up, the RAM is assigned permanently to it in accordance with the specific features of the particular package. We never re-allocate RAM from a VPS that does not use all of its resources to one that needs more resources, so you'll be able to use the functions of your package deal at their full capability at any time. We create only a few VPS accounts on a physical server and we ensure that it provides an adequate amount of memory to allow all the customers on it to upgrade the RAM which their machines are using without affecting the other accounts.
Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers
The amount of RAM that comes with each and every dedicated server we supply is big enough even for very resource-demanding web applications. The memory will be readily available for your sites and every other software that you install on the web server at all times, so even if at some point you use merely a fraction of the resources which you have, we'll never alter the hardware configuration that you have ordered. All of the components are examined before the hosting server is built, including the RAM sticks, to make sure that you'll get a flawlessly operating web server that can ensure the best possible efficiency for your sites. The amount of physical memory you have will be listed together with the full server configuration specifications within your billing CP.
